Laurier Center of Attack.
It looks now as If I'rernlsr Laurier

at the age of 70, he rould scarcely

strongest foes of reciprocity, who are
equally determined in their opposition.
The fire, which burns hottest In

In Quebec, has been centered on Lau
rier and his opponents are combining
straightforward objection to reciproc
ity with political strategy and a good
deal of pure sophistry. Nor are they
overlooking the highly expedient of
appealing to prejudice and passion by
raising the bogle of annexation as only
an advanced step from reciprocity.
Right here, however, Is where careful
analysis of the antl-Laurier campaign
reveals Its Inconsistency. Tho premier
Is charged with betng too imperialistic
for Canada's good, Henri Rourasal, the
opposition nationalist leader, declaring
that he betrayed Canadian independ
ence to Great Britain on a former occa
sion. Such a charge, to which the
premier's only answer Is "wilful liar,"
scarcely plumbs with the other one.

Americans looking on must take
quiet satisfaction In discovering that

that popular feeling' has reached the
boiling point. Those who feared Cana

In this question have at least had their
Whv Soldiers Quit the Army.
General Frederick D. Grant con
fesses to inability to explain why so
many enlisted men quit the army and
even buy their releases to do so. If
the reasons are Inexplicable to General
Grant, they must be so to civilians out
of touch with the army. The govern
ment recently instituted certain
changes in the detail of army regula
tions tending to lessen the rigid dis
cipline and increase the comforts of the
private soldiers to meet this very con
dition and counteract the causes of so
many premature retirements. It would
seem possible that the small pay of the
private soldier as compared with the
prospects in civil life had a good deal
to do with depleting ranks. The chance
of promotion is not sufficient to offset
what the private considers as his
handicap. Many young men, of course,
are attracted to the army by the
glamor of a military career and when
the newness Is worn off the war spirit
naturally dies down and allows ambi
tion for success In peaceful pursuits to
supplant the old ardor. The govern
ment evidently takes this view of the
case and has determined that if It is
to maintain Its military forces on the
basis of high personnel it will have
to do more to equalize the oppor
tunities in the army with those of
fered young men In other walks of
life. Such a condition Is not to be
wholly deplored, for It naturally must
lead to the general improvement of
our American army life. '
The Tramp Evil.
According to James Forbes, director
of the National Association for the
Prevention of Mendicancy, 250,000
men are tramps in the country today
because they choose to be. He says
the number is on the Increase rather
than on the decrease. MrN Forbes, who
Is regarded as the best authority 'we
have on this subject, considers the
tramp a national menace and offers
some good evidence to prove his point.
For instance, he declares that from
trampdom come many, if not most, of
the criminals In and out of the peni
The unfortunate workingman forced
to seek employment on the byways Is
not to be confounded with the profes
sional tramp. The tramp is a man
without visible means of support, or
desire for it, trying to live entirely in
listless idleness. Tramp conditions
could not help but breed crime. No
argument Is needed, therefore, to con
vince people that the tramp is a big
element in criminality as well as
Moreover Mr. Forbes finds that
trampdom recruits its army largely
I from the ranks of boys with "energy,
imagination and a healthy thirst for
adventure," and that such boys are
found to a large extent In what are
known as "railroad towns." There he
would begin his movement for curbing
the tramp habit. He would do this by
! a course of education among the boys,
employing moving pictures and other
means of setting forth to them, as
vividly and convincingly as possible
the evils and perils of the tramp life
before It has effectually appealed to
In theory the preventive remedy
seems promising. Certainly, society

The Hidden Reaion.
The long-promised suit to contest
the appropriation mado by the late
legislature for the erection of a build
ing at Omaha for the medical depart
ment of the State university baa at last
materialized in an application filed In
court ostensibly In behalf of the so
called homeopathic school of prac
titioners. We msy as well have this
question settled now as later, but there
Is no good reason why the Issue should
The pretended objection to the ap
propriation is that it purports to use
public money for medical education of
a particular brand without giving
equal recognition to all the other
shades and variations of the healing
art. If thlB argument were good, Ne
braska, nor any other state, could ever
conduct a medical school in connection
with its university unless it gave equal
course of Instruction for allopaths,
homeopaths, eclectics, osteopaths, men
tal therapeutists and all the others.
But the real objection does not go
to the teaching methods of the medi
cal school, but to the fact that the
building provided for is to be erected
at Omaha Instead of at Lincoln. If
in making the appropriation the law
makers had favored the state capital,
it is almost certain no such suit
would have been Instituted or even
A Questionable Proceeding.
While The Bee. Is thoroughly In
sympathy with every move calculated
to allay the labor troubles that seem
to threaten a railroad strike, we can
not help regarding the intrusion of
of the Omaha Business Men's associ
ation with unsolicited advice to the
unions as a decidedly questionable
proceeding. The advice may be sound
and prompted by the best of motives,
but the fact that it emanates from an
association of employers defiantly hos
tile to organized labor will not
strengthen the argument with the
unions, but op the contrary is more
likely to make them suspicious and re
sentful. Another point entirely overlooked is
the fact that the tension between the
railroads and their men is by no means
local to Omaha. The Omaha Business
Men's association has a right to ex
press its opinion If it so desires, but
so have the business men's associations
of Fremont, North Platte and Cheyenne
a proportionately equal interest. The
action of the Omaha Business Men's
association, It ' strikes us, is apt to
solidify all the local labor organizations
on the other side, and Instead of help
ing to get together to make It 'more
difficult to secure mutual agreements
Check Them Up Again.
The terrible moving picture disaster
in Pennsylvania, crushing out the lives
of twenty-five helpless women and
children, suggests that otter cities, and
especially Omaha, check up again these
amusement places to make sure against
unnecessary fire risk and stampede
danger. Most moving picture estab
lishments in Omaha are installed la
buildings erected for other purposes,
and poorly adapted to their present
use. They are patronized largely by
women and children, just as the one
where the awful accident occurred,
and the demand for careful operation
and unobstructed exits Is imperative.
It will be a great deal better to close
up a few flimsy picture concerns than
to hold a coroner's InqueBt on 'the vic
tims. Wonder If It would be too much to
expect the street railway company to
give the "White wings" a new coat of
whitewash before the big and little
postmasters from all over the country

a private In the confederate army. At the
close of tha civil war five confederates took
refuge In Canada and planned to kidnap
the president. As the priest related the
incident to the bishop, these five men went
to Washington in disguise, but before they
did anything one of them was captured as
a suspected spy and sentenced lo be hanged
or shot. The man was a friend of Wilkes
Booth, and the latter went to see President
Lincoln In an effort to have the life of his
friend saved; that Booth stated afterward
that the president giantrd hla request for

Omaha News haa developed Into one of the
most vlcloua "yellow" Journals In the
country, running a close second with the
Appeal to Reason, and stirring up patsslons
that can find a logical outlet onlv in
anarchy or revolution. In the movement
for popular government, the News declares
that "over all Is the shadow of the supreme
court," which must finally pass on the
questions aa to whether "government, of
and for the people, la republican form of
government." The Insinuation Is that the
supreme court of the land will throttle all
these popular movements, and the sug
gestion la so Infamous that It may well
make honest cltisens shudder, It Is so
sinister and suggestive of things unthink
able! Happily the supreme court stands
between the demagogue and the constitu
tion, between the mountebank and the
rock of the republic. And when the last
barrier Is broken down, when the court
are powerless In the clutch of popular pas

of the fathers will have disappeared and a

have replaced it.
